    hi everyone,
    this is my first posting to this forum,so im kinda nervous
    well,,here goes,
    i got a present of a dvd writer for my pc, now i have one
    already installed in the pc along with a very nearly clapped out
    cd writer.
    i was wondering if i take out the cd writer,can i fit the new
    dvd writer and have two of them in the pc??
    is there any special tweaks to be made to get the two of them to live in
    harmony, or is it a bad idea.
    any help would be greatly appreciated. ger

    There should be no problems having two DVD burners in there. Your burning software should allow you to select either one for burning a CD or DVD that resides in the other drive.

    But here's an idea. Save that new drive for another computer that doesn't have a DVD burner. If your CD drive really is on it's last legs, then go ahead and swap it out for the new DVD burner.
